Bell & Ross Present The New BR 03 Gyrocompass To Keep You On Track
The Bell & Ross BR 03 Gyrocompass will be limited to only 999 total pieces
Instrument watch designer, Bell & Ross, adapts the most iconic dial yet of an aeroplane cockpit with the new BR 03 Gyrocompass. This highly evocative timepiece for lovers of aeronautics will keep everyone on track, all day, everyday, while the fighter plane silhouette in the centre of the black dial leaves no room for doubt.
With the new limited-edition BR 03 Gyrocompass, Bell & Ross pays tribute to one of its favourite worlds: aeronautics. The appearance of the watch is faithful to the kind of technical design used for a pilot’s dial at the helm of an aircraft, adopting the graphic codes for what is known to professionals as a course indicator.
Moreover, reinvented this year in new proportions, the iconic rounded square shape of the BR 03 range now comes in a 41mm case. Also available in this new size, the BR 03 Gyrocompass has a black ceramic case just 10.6 mm thick and waterproof to 100 metres.
Better Legibility For Day And Night
The display of the new BR 03 Gyrocompass has been designed to offer perfect practical readability in all circumstances, day, or night. The fighter plane silhouette draws attention. The tip of the plane’s nose aligns with the indices so that the wearer can tell the time with precision. It’s a solution first visited by Bell & Ross in 2013.
To ensure its functionality in the dark, the watch features a sophisticated luminescent treatment: the cardinal points and their triangular indices are coated with Super-LumiNova with a green emission colour, while the time indications are highlighted by an immediately recognisable blue emission and the aircraft silhouette stands out even more in a unique yellow tint with green emissions.
Celebrating Mechanical Excellence
Beyond the power of the display, the watch pays homage to the complex mechanical design of the aeronautical gyrocompass. For pilots, it’s crucial to know their precise position. As such, Bell & Ross engineers developed this visually simple yet technically complex system, with a mechanism that transfers the position of a plane in flight into a vertical graphic representation on the dial.
